Born in Athens in 1964, Dimitris Papaioannou gained early recognition as a painter and comics artist, before his focus shifted to the performing arts, as director, choreographer, performer, and designer of sets, costumes, make up, and lighting. He was a student of the iconic Greek painter Yannis Tsarouchis. For 17 years he created original stage productions, hybrids of physical theatre, experimental dance, and performance art in his Edafos Dance Theatre.
Papaioannou became widely known as the creator of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Athens Olympic Games (2004) and the first European Games in Baku (2015). He is actively directing avant-garde productions for big theaters in Greece and Europe.
